Let's remember that sound is a very subjective thing. For instance: the cat who gets the patch cord, perfectly engineered and produced recording might have a technically cleaner (albeit sterile) sound than the one standing a quarter of a mile away from the speakers with a cheap cassette recorder. As to whether the adulterated sound of the band alone, or the captured sounds of both band and crowd are "purer" or "better," is more matter of opinion and taste than theory.

Agreed, but that's a separate issue from turning say, .wma or .mp3 files into .flac.
